intolerance and violence

If we are ever to achieve true global community we must all stand up and make our voices heard. Silence in the face of intolerance is not acceptable. It is complicity.

Intolerance comes from fear and insecurity. Love is about openness and acceptance. I choose love. I choose openness. I choose acceptance.

What about you?

#ZeroHunger

Imagine #zerohunger.

Our generation is the first in history with the possibility of ending hunger forever. Think about what a world changer that will be. Working together we can create a world where every child is fed and not one of our human family goes to bed with an empty stomach.

What a powerful legacy to leave to our children and grandchildren. Creating a world with #zerohunger is both the right thing to do and is a powerful demonstration of our global community living more justly.

#zerohunger…lets make it happen. Let’s eradicate hunger in our lifetime.

Starvation is the characteristic of some people not having enough food to eat. It is not the characteristic of there not being enough food to eat.Amartya Sen

We know there is enough food in the world to feed everyone. We do not need to produce more food to end hunger in our lifetime. All that is necessary to end hunger is simply better distribution  of the food already being produced.

Achieving better distribution is currently hindered by the immorality of those of us with the power to stand up for the hungry and undernourished of world. The lack of true global community which arises from our superficial and spurious spirituality is directly related to the unnecessary deaths of 25,000 of our sisters and brothers every single day.

This generation has the awesome opportunity to end hunger in our lifetime, yet we are too morally bankrupt to even care. We are far to busy mindlessly spending our way to Hell.
